A novel tertiary amine and amino acid-based “schizophrenic” pH-responsive block copolymer, PDEA-b-PAP, has been synthesized by RAFT polymerization. By directly dissolving this copolymer in acid or basic aqueous solution block copolymer vesicles with switchable coronas and membranes were prepared. These novel assemblies were characterized using TEM, DLS, zeta potential, and SLS analysis.
